Two Austin City Council seats and two positions on the Austin ISD board of trustees will be decided via runoff elections Dec. 15 after no candidate received more than 50% of the vote in the Nov. 3 general election. Early voting opens Dec. 3 at 7 a.m. in Travis County and Williamson County

Both Austin City Council incumbents are running to retain their seats. In District 6, which covers Northwest Austin, incumbent Jimmy Flannigan is facing challenger Mackenzie Kelly. In District 10, in West Austin, incumbent Alison Alter is facing challenger Jennifer Virden.

In Austin ISD District 5, which covers parts of Central and Southwest Austin, Lynn Boswell is running against Jennifer Littlefield. In Position 8, which is an at-large seat that covers the entire district, Noelita Lugo is running against Leticia Moreno Caballero.

Registered voters who live anywhere within Austin ISD's boundaries can vote for the at-large position. Only those within AISD District 5 and Austin City Council Districts 6 and 10 can vote for those respective seats. However, voters are able to cast their ballot anywhere within their respective counties.
